This leaflet is for building owners and occupiers, construction businesses and workers in the construction refurbishment and building maintenance sectors – in short, anyone working on fragile roofs or having work done.

It explains which surfaces present a particular risk, and what you should do as a building owner or occupier. It also explains what a safe system of work is, and gives some examples.
